I am the gg-granddaughter of Walter Purkis. His daughter Ethel Purkis Middleton was my g-grandmother. I'll have to check my information on Walter, but he lived in Winnepeg, Man., Canada, and is probably buried there. I know he died sometime after his daughter's death in 1935. I'll check my info to see if I have the exact yr.
